When I lived in Beijing, I knew the owners of a boutique commercial advertising agency. They only had a few clients, but each one was substantially large. Their most lucrative account was a home supplies company in Jiangsu Province that made laundry detergent, air freshener, liquid soap, and other household items. The agency produced the company''s commercials and then made sure that they aired on CCTV.
When the company''s CFO graduated from college, she worked as a kindergarten teacher. A few decades later, she was a multi-millionaire in charge of operations for a company that employed 40,000. Her name was Ning.
The company''s factory offered a mid-sized amusement park for the employees. It had three roller coasters, two water slides, a wave pool, and rides for children.
Ning''s husband, Zhang,The couple's daily communication time will not be more than two hours, they have their own business, busy and full。Maybe in our opinion, all of this is crazy, but this is the normal in China. Their main core is around work. Families, children and couples usually give way to work!
I have a Chinese friend named "Bai"，She had a Starbucks card with $10,000 credit on it.
But unexpectedly, "Bai" is not a coffee drinker. He told me in private that she prefers "soda", but she regularly recharges her Starbucks card, all for "business talk"。
Recently, I happened to have a shooting mission in Guangzhou. The boss of the advertising company suggested that I go to their studio to have a look - I was shocked by the scene. When I stepped into the studio, everyone didn't seem to show special emotions towards a stranger's visit. Everyone continued to do their own things, and they just nailed their jobs like precision screws!
